A MOUNTAIN rescue team were able to track down a lost young couple via their phones after they attempted to scale England's tallest mountain.

Duddon and Furness Mountain Rescue Team were called out on Sunday night (March 31) to assist a young couple who had become disoriented when attempting to walk up Scafell Pike from Cockley Beck.

They were quickly located using PhoneFind (a method that the team can use to get a phone to report its location) and a small team of four were able to escort them back to safety.
